What delegates say about our courses
Certificate in Supporting International Learners with Dyslexia (DACRT67)
“The support offered here is excellent, the tutors are always available to help and I would highly recommend you study with Dyslexia Action.”
“This is an excellent short CPD course for me and I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I am very pleased that the course ran during the summer period, as this is the only time I can do any course to improve my skills. The tutors are very supportive.”
Level 7 Postgraduate Programme
Having completed the first part of the postgraduate course, and spurred on by the success her learners with dyslexia have achieved, Jacqueline is now completing further Level 7 modules in assessment and hopes to complete her Masters. She is considering a change of career in the future, perhaps with a greater focus on specialist dyslexia support. She recommends Dyslexia Action to others particularly because of the quality of the support it provides. “They really understand the needs of working delegates like me,” she says. “They have great expertise and they offer you the support you need.”
